Back to School Fashion Series: Part One: Sweaters & Cardis


Hello my little spices! There are some exciting times brewing at Sartorial Spice as the weather begins to show signs of cooling down. I’ve finally gone self-hosted! So you can expect a lot more giveaways and maybe a guest blogger or two.

Today, I woke up and was surprised by how chilly it was outside.  Fall is arriving and there is no stopping it! I’ve decided to make a series of Back to School Fashions complete with product sets and some of my favorite items out there.  There will be items of every budget but I will of course try to hit below the $100 or $200 marks.  I do know some ladies love to splurge on shoes though, so those will be the priciest items.

First up?


I’ve always have had an obsession with sweaters..there is something about them that make them so appealing to me.  They are soft and warm and you can dress them up or down, depending on the shape and fabric of the said sweater.  I’ve always liked them a bit oversized since I am a bigger girl, it’s just like a nice warm hug!  They are the best thing to wear around campus when you know you are going to be there for a while. Why not be comfortable, warm, and stylish at the same time?

Gap and Old Navy Sweaters

Pointelle Sweater, Gap, $45; Drop Shoulder V Neck Sweater, Old Navy, $30; Luxlight Rugby Stripe Pullover, Gap, $40.

I actually own the Pointelle sweater and it is a bit oversized but it is super soft and the little preforations make it different and extremely casual. Here is how I would pair them.

      Aww thank you! That means a lot! Gap really does have some great basics and I find that most of the time they last a while.
